opportunity for americans. at a time when our deficit has been cut in half, it enables us to meet our obligations to future generations without a mountain of debt. this adheres to the spending principles members of both houses and both parties agreed to. it also builds on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth, and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is fully paid for by making smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and well-connected. i will give you an example. right now our tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save, even after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole, we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know the country that wins the race for new technology will win the race for new jobs, so this budget creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where businesses and universities will partner to turn groundbreaking research into new indus

[video clip] we have to decide if we're are going to make smart investments. our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years. we have to decide if we're going to keep squeezing the middle class or reduce deficits responsibly while taking steps strengthen the middle class. approach my budget offers. that is why i will fight for this year and in the years to come. talking about his $3.9 trillion budget. this is president obama's 2015 budget, it spends too much, borrows too much, and taxes too much. it re
on supporting the middle class then reducing the budget deficit through higher taxes for the bench. he's apparently during the midterm congressional elections in november. obama is calling for more works projects such as repairing roads and railways. he also aims to boost employment by introducing more vocational training. his proposals include tax cuts for lower income people and better pre school education. spending is set to slightly exceed three point nine trillion dollars while revenue is expected to increase to more than three point three trillion dollars as an economic recovery boost tax income. obama says the budget deficit will decline to five hundred sixty four billion dollars the lowest level in his presidency. we go to the side of the road you squeeze the middle class or for going to continue to reduce the deficit is responsible for all taking steps to grow and strengthen the middle class. republican house speaker john bain are strongly criticized the draft he said it was the most irresponsible. he said it would only increase spending and borrowing expanded governments and
for his domestic initiative while also strengthening the deficit. >> host: dan, republican caller. >> caller: i was just listening earlier to a caller talking about the epa, and they talked about bill companies getting all these breaks. based on what i've read and found out on the internet is a pay $60 million a day in places, in taxes. and how you going to pay that if you shut down the oil companies and the guy that's supplying the energy for the united states? >> host: where did you read they pay for leasing of the land and taxes? >> caller: that's just on the internet. >> host: zachary goldfarb, the oil companies and gas company to pay taxes and they do have to pay the federal government to lease these lands. >> guest: that's right. the reason the government thinks is there is its multiple. first, the government belief these are public lands in many cases and some some of the benefits of that oil and gas should spread the people in those committees and around the country and not just into the pockets of the company. secondly, there is enforcement, environmental regulations in t
of the conditions applied. difficult steps need to be undertaken to raise as gas prices and trim budget deficits, but ukraine should be given a long enough pleased so these reforms don't strangle a nation. today dealing with threats to its very existence. second, crimea. russia has invaded ukraine. make the mistake. they have done so in violation of the united nations charter and the very accord that they signed in 1994 guaranteeing crimea's territorial security. no doubt vladimir putin will soar him as his ally in ukraine president's office in no doubt he didn't like the fact united states voiced his strong support for the right of a sovereign ukraine to make independent decisions about its future partnerships. and no doubt, he is infuriated that the ukrainian people are now on their way to getting their way. this is not a schoolyard. you don't get to push around weaker or just because you don't like them. this is a 21st century. the reason we belong to organizations like the united nations, the reason we negotiate treaties like the budapest memorandum is because we now understand after centuri
. no more bail outs and it will not add a dime to the deficit. 5.5 billion, and money to go to the insurance companies to make up for the fact that not enough young healthy people are applying for obama carry. only 25 percent of those are young and healthy. and marco rubio read the obama care bill and full health care law and found this provision, butied dope inside of obama care section 1342, is authorization for what is known for risk corridors. this means when companies lose money dow to not enough people signing up for obama care as has been the case so far, taxpayers get stuck for the bill. the administration is calling it a temporary poll of money. now, maybe if you believe that obama care wasn't going to cost a dime you buy that explanation. most of the time when the government sends money in companies tdoesn't get the money back. >> i was looking at a summery of the budget proposal yesterday, he conveniently leaves out a chunk of spending. 60 billion in tax credit to finance the private coverage of obama care. i mean, that adds to the the deficit, does it not. >> 60 billion by the wa
deficits and strengthens our long-term fiscal outlook. through additional health care reforms, tax reform and by fixing our broken immigration system. we recognize the importance of the bipartisan funding compromise reached by the congress and the budget shows the president's funding priorities at the 2015 spending levels that were agreed to in the deal. however, we believe those are not sufficient, both in 2015 and beyond, and to ensure the nation is achieving its fullest potential. for that reason, the budget includes an opportunity, growth and security initiative that is fully paid for. it's split evenly between defense and nondefense and it presents additional investments in things like education, research and manufacturing. building on the model established in ryan-murray, the initial tiff is fully paid for with a balance package of spending cuts and tax reforms, so it is deficit neutral. supporting what the president said in the state of the union, the budget includes a series of measures to create jobs and accelerate growth in the economy. for example, as the mdafferings announced
even further into record territory. >>> the treasury department says the country's budget deficit dropped to its lowest level in six years, during 2013. the federal deficit was $680 billion in the last fiscal year. that's down from about $1.1 trillion the previous year. cnn global economic analyst, managing editor of "time" magazine. so it's a dramatic -- about 15% drop in the deficit, which is still high, but a lot less than it used to be. what happened? >> well, in short, the country's growing again. we have been in a recovery for the last year. hasn't felt like one to a lot of people, but growing your way out of a deficit is always the best way to do it. that happened during the boom period of the clinton years, what a lot of people have been hoping would happen once we got past the fiscal headwinds in washington, that we get back on a growth path. what's interesting, though, there is actually a cbo study out looking at the longer term impact on budget deficits. and we have to keep growing faster in order to keep it down. we go back to a 2% economy, those numbers will tick righ
. at the same time bush gave huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country. ran up a huge deficit. then under obama the republicans come back. they say, gee, we have a terrible deficit. we're going to have to cut social security, medicare, medicaid, education, environmental protection. the needs of the kids' nutrition programs because of this deficit. so if you are asking me, do i this i that same set of policies will play out? more money for defense, then rising deficits and then cutbacks on programs that middle class and working families need? absolutely, that is what will happen. >> what is going to happen to these veterans, now, senator, if they're not going to get this kind of funding. there are a lot of veterans in this country that are being undercut, that are not being -- our obligation, we are not living up to our obligations because of war and budget cuts. so what does that say to the next generation thinking of a career in the military? >> that's a very important point. it says if we cannot keep faith with those people really hurting as a result of service to this count
convince the american people it would be different this time. >> i will. the worst budget deficit under george bush happened in his last term in office. that's when nancy pelosi was speaker of the house. budget ra $450 billion. president obama blew through those deficits. he had in excess of trillion dollar deficits year after year. what the republicans were able to do in the house is not continue that level of trajectory. has spending gone up? it absolutely has. but the level has slowed down and -- >> i get the feeling, congresswoman, maybe not you in particular, a lot of your party are giving up the fight and keeping the powder dry and hoping at the end of the year pick up more seats in the house and maybe take the senate and you bet you that will be the time when republicans get serious. but is that a lot to hang your hat on? >> well, what we need to hang our hat on is boosting the labor force participation rate. we're at the lowest level ever for anyone over age 16 actually having a job in the labor force and in a full-time capacity. that has to change. and unfortunately the preside
deficit has been cut in half. it allows us to meet our obligations to future generations. from the heard president, deficit picture is looking better. much so that levels will be below where they were before the budget crisis. >> how do republicans react to away from the emphasis on deficit reduction act out >? >> john baeder came out and said that this was the most irresponsible budget yet of the obama has proposed. the president laster put out an all french to republicans and said he was willing to make changes to social security, medicare and other entitlement programs. those are all gone this year. for republicans to look at these budgets in the lines of what the established last year in terms of topline numbers under the agreement, this budget is something that will not move in the house of republicans. are viewed asts more of political documents as opposed to policy proposals. >> that really is right. especially this year. yep midterms coming up in november. the white house wanted to lay out policy priorities going forward to follow through on over the next eight months. the presid
speaker john boehner, and if you look at the deficit, it's been cut by more than half in 2009, the fastest deficit decline over a sustained period since world war ii, so would you acknowledge some progress is being made? >> yeah, i think it's a great point. if you look at the numbers, looks like quite a bit of progress has been made and the deficit has come down very quickly. that, of course, comes after a large rampup in the deficit where it grew by 800% before those four years, and i think more troubling is if you look at the nation's debt, where our debt levels are twice as large as they've been historically and are at historic highs and that's where the trouble is. while we've done a lot of deficit reduction, we've done it in the wrong way. we've focused on, i think, inadvertently through congress not being able to pick our policies on short-term measures that came out of the budget, which isn't where the problem is. what we should be doing is trying to replace those savings that came from the sequester that aren't as useful or long-term with more permanent and structural changes to en
issue right now, deficit, debt, from the ministrations point of view, it is not something are focusing on right now. >> take you for setting the scene. -- thank you for setting the scene. york, our guest host, we have the chart of earlier. it is a massive victory lap. can we get back to a surplus? can we get back to that surplus? >> that is certainly not on the near-term horizon. what is important to note, three years ago the deficit was 10% of tdp and this year, 3%. it wasn't pretty. it didn't look like the civics textbooks, but we have a lot of deficit reduction. we had the ryan murphy agreement. it basically takes fiscal policy off the table for the next two years. barring a dramatic or election outcome in november, the administration will be status quo for 2017. >> are you willing to say austerity in the u.s. worked while austerity in europe did not work question mark -- work? able to register economic growth. it has been sluggish. europe has not been able to pull it off and a big impact of the fed he been the economy supported. >> the former fed governor, wonderful textbook, i don
, and they really do look at me like i'm on medication when i tell them, the deficit is falling pretty sharply. this mode of fiscal restraint is grossly underappreciated. i will talk about that in a minute or two. this mood of fiscal restraint will persist as long as one thing continues and that is republican control of the house. toill leave it to dr. cook give us his analysis of where the houses added after the 2014 election. i think this theme has legs and will continue for quite some time. before this,d me what about all the gridlock in washington? i would agree that we look dysfunctional in this city but i would also say that we have had some fairly interesting breakthroughs in the last two or three months. we got a budget deal with paul ryan and patty murray. i think paul ryan is growing as a politician, not as reflexively conservative. i think he was willing to even look at some modest revenue increases. we got a farm bill. it wasn't great but we got a farm bill and most importantly, you see clear signs from the republican leadership in the house that they did not want a crisis over the
could save. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> the federal deficit plunged by more than $400 in the last fiscal deficit. the sharpest drop since the end of world war ii. alison kosik is in new york to tell us why this happened. >> the federal budget deficit is at its lowest level in five years. the deficit is the difference between what the government spends and takes in. that dropped to $680 billion in 2013. to give you some perspective, during the financial crisis, it shot up above $1 trill in 2009 as the economy tanked and government bailouts became the norm. here is why it is happening. the economy is getting better over the last few years. the deficit has been shrinking. also, we are paying higher taxes. all that means more revenue for the government. the government has cut back on spending. the republicans, they still insist that the budget deficit is still too large. if they are looking for a fight, they may not get it. congress agreed to a bipartisan budget deal. mid-term elections are coming in the fall. a strengthening economy is removing m
with opportunity for all americans. at a time when the deficit is cut in half this allows us to meet our obligations to future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. to the balance in congress but it also builds up on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is paid for with smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and the well-connected. i will give you an example. right now the tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know that the country that wins the race for new technologies will win new jobs so this creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where universities and businesses will work for groundbreaking technology for new jobs in america. part of the reason we're here today is because education has to sta

the deficit? because we all know nothing animates the republican party more than reducing the deficit. what's that you say? oh, it would increase the deficit by $74 billion over 10 years. impossible. of course, this bill is not going to become law. it is very instructive as a reminder that any actual commitment to legislating our complex business an teen health insurance regime will help create disruptions. the republican strategy to kill obama care has been to point to the disruptions it has created and it may create and say the end of the world is nye. if they ever got around to implementing their own plan, that would have its own disruptions. this friday, house majority leader eric cantor will meet with leaders to work on putting together what will be billed as the house republican alternative to obama care. here's my prediction. he could come out of that meeting with two dozen alternatives, but the republican party will actually get behind exactly none of them. not in any real way. that would mean grappling with the reality of reforming health care, and not just throwing stones from the
when our deficit's been cut in half, it allows us to meet our obligations to future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. >> woodruff: the 2015 deficit would decline, to $560 billion, but republicans today said the red ink, spending hikes and tax increases mean the plan is dead on arrival. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> rather than put together a constructive blueprint the two parties could use as a jumping off point, to get our economy moving and our fiscal house in order, the president has once again opted for the political stunt for a budget that's more about firing up the base in an election year than about solving the nation's biggest and most persistent long-term challenges >> woodruff: congressman paul ryan, the house budget chair, likewise called the obama plan a disappointment. in a statement, he said: >> woodruff: ryan offered an extensive critique yesterday of federal anti-poverty efforts. he's expected to release a republican budget proposal in the coming weeks. >> woodruff: some of the more notable pieces of the president's proposal, and expected
to the flood insurance program which is 24 billion in deficit spending. will this legislation put us further into the deficit? >> no, not at all. in fact, this bill, unlike the senate version which, you know there was a lot of discussion over the senate version, this bill is actually 100% paid for, and, generates about $165 million, according to the cbo, of revenue over five years. so it pays for itself. it is not a tax because it, it pays for itself only for those within the national flood insurance program. so if you're not in a flood zone and you don't have flood insurance, this doesn't affect you. but if you are in the flood insurance program and your primary residence you will pay a user fee to pay in the program of $25 a year. very reasonable. that will pay for the program. gerri: i got it tell you, 200 million over five years? that doesn't do anything over4 billion in debt the program is already n how will we pay that off? >> well it is still better than nothing. had we done nothing, there wouldn't be 165 million toward that debt. that is number one. second thing that number is not co
budget cuts through the 2011 deficit-driven tea party threat to default on the debt. and now chuck hagel is carrying those out and folks like senator rubio and other colleagues are saying we don't like the thing we made you do under the threat of default. >> there is no democrat that causes them more trouble than what 2ed cruz causes them. they don't have a majority in the senate, the republicans don't, because of ted cruz and his ilk who have been pushing these candidates who can't possibly win when they get the nomination. the democrats have to secretly be watching this and whatever, you know, personal dislike they have for cruz, they have to sit there in the senate and go we are so lucky that ted cruz is just ruining life for republicans in the senate. >> oh, yeah. democrats absolutely feel he's been a huge thorn in the side. he's a messaging nightmare. and when it comes to senate parliamentary procedure, which is something you and i happen to have the benefit of knowing a little bit about. he's also a liar. and it makes republicans look really bad. there is such a thing as a real fil
deficits in the second decade. >> i think it will be the opposite. it will generate more revenue. it will add $700 billion in new revenues to help us pay down the debt. i believe, spending cuts can get us to a balanced budget. >> you think by the second decade it will raise revenues because of the dynamics. >> in the first decade. >> you drew a parallel to the 1986 tax reform under president reagan. one of the differences is that under that measure, the earned income tax credit for the poor was vastly expanded. under this proposal it would be cut back. a woman making a minimum wage of $17,000, she will lose $2000 in 4-5 years. should the poor have to pay the burden? >> they do not. everyone making up to $100,000 sees a tax cut. and, average family takes home -- >> that is cut back a little bit. shouldn't that be expanded rather than cut back? >> it is not. in my view, it was supposed to offset the payroll tax. unfortunately it has gone beyond that. it is refocus back on making sure a roll taxes taxes are offset. it is phased out later so more families have that opportunity, and i

it is important to put in perspective that the budget deficit is not being driven by spending on domestic programs like this. it is driven by a slow economy. >> certainly entitlements. >> no. >> 60 percent of it. >> alisyn. that was my next point. but this is different from medicare and social security right? you look at the overall budget it is misleading for the republicans to tell the american people if they can get the budget deficit in better shape by cutting programs. it is it a very, very small part of the overall budget. we can always make government work better and i trust paul ryan is coming from an honest point. >> the war on poverty 50 years later. >> last thing you expect to interrupt your grocery shopping right here. >> i thought he was going to stop but he kept on driving through. >> you will learn who is behind the wheel. you will see that in a moment. >> plus matthew mcconaughey injecting faith in hollywood's glamous night. >> first of all i want to thank god. i look up to it him. he graced my life with opportunities that are not of my hand or other human hands. which would be fin

they did not vote on the total budget, deficit or surplus if there was one. this is to get them to vote for a budget resolution one place, one time and then run for election on your vote. that stopped. they didn't want to vote for this, and there is no penalty for not voting in it. and then congress doesn't feel they have any obligation to pass one of its own. the process needs to be completely redone. it's not shown that anyone has the testicular fortitude to do it. >> the debt limit is not the place to be having a discussion wherof how you spend your money. this is interesting to me that conservative members of congress are having their cake and eating it, but at the same time not able to prioritize spending the way they would actually like. >> well, let's remember that the conservative members like liberal members can't make decisions unilaterally. i'm sure if the conservatives had the power with the hype see. they probably have trouble getting the support with the reading of the lord's prayer these days. but when it comes to taxes and budget and taxes debt, it's difficult because th

, don't be my friend. >> easily defensible. >> another stimulus plan. more debt, higher deficits, rob our children blind and you're all in support of it? >> it's not that i'm in support of it let's talk about what it really is. the numbers already been decided. that was the whole partisan thing that happened a few months ago, what we're going to quick et over is how that money's going to be divided. >> we're going to gut defense. >> you may have heard that it's an election year. is it at all possible that this is an election budget that every one of us knows is never going through? >> we're going to rob our children? >> no, we're not. >> it's not going to happen. >> you know it's not going to happen. >> it's an election year. fudge it. >> i concede the point counselor. >> good night, folks. >> i concede that point, it's not going to happen, the fact that he wants it. didn't we learn? sl. >> he doesn't want it, congress wants it. >> everyone in congress has to run in november, it's a democratic budget p. >> why do they waste our time in. >> that's how politics works. you don't think th
he is recommending for each show agency and the deficit projections for 10 years. they say it will be low work, but how to make at work. obama will not be including the chain cpi proposal. inflation is measured that would have the effect of lowering social security benefits and other federal benefits. the aarp andsed by liberals in congress. arguing itthat out, was a all a branch for republicans. not willing to do a big deal on the deficit in order to get things under control. by taking that out, they will lose 230 billion or so in deficit reduction. already we know one of the ways will be assuming the senate passes and immigration overall. go much does that cost you these are the kinds of things we will be looking for. perhaps the least effective budgets we have seen in years because congress are it has a toplines appropriations number for this year. they are are ready holding hearings. this is entitlement overhaul out of the midterm. how is the budget actually released today, and to are the surrogates that the white house is sending to capitol hill over the next coming da
security is our deficits, our debt. it's going to crowd out other spending. it threatens our economic viability, our growth potential, and it actually places us at risk for some financial crisis in the years to come. so i -- our voters deserve better. and look at how they tend to maneuver this legislation. it's just so absurd sometimes. we should laugh about it if it weren't so serious, and it is serious. the sanders bill, the veterans' bill that we are being told we must vote for or they will accuse us of being unkind and unsupportive and unsympathetic to our veterans. that day's over. we're not going to be intimidated on this. we're going to do the right thing for veterans and america. this bill would exceed the spending limits for the current fiscal year that congress and other -- and the president agreed to just three months ago. initially -- and it gets worse in the outer years, it would clearly add another $260 million in mandatory spending and authorize another $182 million this year, fiscal year 2014 we're already in, $182 million. and it gets worse. so we agreed in 2011, augu
applaud the fact there is over $200 billion of deficit reduction in the affordable care act if we can find additional savings and replace lost revenue, we are certainly open to that discussion. i rise in celebration of having width stood 50 repeal votes. we are ready for the next 50. we use these opportunities to highlight the american people on the benefits of the affordable care act. and to say we are ready to have a real discussion with republicans to exert our legislative privilege to make changes. in the absence of that we applaud the president in using the ability that is we gave him under the act to help make sure the affordable care act truly makes health care more affordable for american families. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from colorado reserves. the gentleman from texas. mr. burgess: i yield myself two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized, two minutes. mr. burgess: mr. speaker, here's the affordable care act. the president said it's the law of the land. how does it describe the effective date for the individu
moral about running up huge deficits, about out of control welfare bills. if we don't deal with these problems the whole country will be poor. i think we should listen to the words of george carey, the former archbishop of canterbury who said this. the churches should be aware of the dangers of blindly defending a gargantuan welfare budget that increases politician would cut as a matter of economic common sense. i think serious politicians have to engage in this and that should go for everybody. >> ed miliband. [shouting] >> mr. speaker, i join my honorable friend and the prime minister in congratulating team gb on a brilliant performance at the window limits but as the threat of floods passes there's thousands out of their homes. some are still underwater and hundreds of businesses and farms are still struggling to recover. the committee on climate change, the house of commons library and the uk statistical authority have all now said that government investment and flood defenses has fallen. in the light of this an event we have seen, does the prime minister think it's rig
lending that will be done. in other words, the tax will go not to reduce the deficit or debt and it will be less lending. why would we be doing that? it makes no sense. spoke with a hunt representative and i want to get your take. to 25, and you are right, 99% of taxpayers will be at 25% or less. 99% and a when i was in school. what we do that is have trade-offs. >> back to the one percent argument. does this thing stand a snowballs chance in hell passing? >> for the bank tax, i hope not, cost -- because you will have less lending. the panel that i was on, and simpson bowles, better known to the general public, we all recommended dramatic reduction rates and elimination of most exemptions, deductions, and credits. that is the only way you solve the problem. if you go at it piecemeal, whether a bank tax on mortgage interest eduction, you never get it resolved. the reality is you want to balance the budget and get the debt in line with where it ought to be. you are going to have to do very dramatic things. i am glad that conversation is starting. you are known as one of the mos
of people felt was ungovernable, chiefly because of the budget deficit and now there's a surplus. is there a national leadership lesson that california provide? >> you've got to be tough on spending. at the end of the day, fiscal discipline is the fundamental predicate of a free society. and you just have to maintain that. secondly, you do have to find a way to create a governing consensus or coalition. in california, we do have a majority democratic party. and we don't have the any constitutional blocking points like the 60-vote requirement in the senate or the division of parties in the house between the house and the senate. >> it is interesting, is there a lesson for president obama no matter how liberal you are, you said, here the president's about to present a budget where he's saying look, the deficits are coming down for now. we've got to spend more. we're only going to get the economy going in a meaningful way if we spend more on infrastructure and the loo i can. >> yeah, spend more but in the framework of adjusting your long-term liabilities so we're in balance. so that
